Pizzerie Eccellenti 2020
Pizzeria Di Matteo
The pizza Margherita at Di Matteo is one of the best in the historic center. Highly digestible, it combines quality with price. The pizzas that this historic establishment located in the historic city center offers, (reachable by subway, the cumana, or train) are the classic pizzas like Margherita, Capricciosa, and Marinara.
Additionally, you can find the variant of the “Neapolitan 4 seasons”: Margherita, Marinara, sausage and broccoli rape and ricotta, provola and pork greaves. We would like to make particular mention of the “Faccia Gialla” which pays homage to San Gennaro (the location where he is venerated is just a few steps away). It is topped with buffalo-milk mozzarella, grated lemon zest, yellow cherry tomatoes and cheese. Even Di Matteo keeps up with the current trends; he has included Salvatore Di Matteo pizzas in his menu (“pizze firmate Salvatore Di Matteo”). The signature dish is the fried pizza with provola, cherry tomatoes and pork greaves. It is light and flavourful.
The tables are spaced out as required by COVID restrictions, but the menu is difficult to consult online due to the lack of wifi. This is a non-pretentious location, and it is characterized by the kindness of the staff.
